Turkey on Thursday said an intelligence agent working for one of the states in the US-led coalition had been captured for helping three British teenage girls cross into Syria to join Daesh jihadists.
"Do you know who helped those girls? He was captured. He was someone working for the intelligence (service) of a country in the coalition," Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told the A-Haber channel in an interview published by the official Anatolia news agency.
He said the agent was neither a national of an EU state, nor the US, without specifying further. The three teens crossed into Syria after boarding a flight from London to Istanbul on February 17.
